Primary Care

for the Whole Family

Highland Family Medicine Murfreesboro, TN, offers the highest-quality medical care to you and your loved ones through all phases of life.


Ensure that your baby or toddler is healthy by following the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) scheduled check-up recommendation: at birth, 3 to 5 days after birth, and then at 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, and 24 months.


If your child ever develops a fever (102 F and over), becomes easily irritated, and has a skin rash, a family doctor check-up is the best thing you can do. Fill out the form below to schedule an appointment with us.


Teenagers can be very secretive and may hide their symptoms from you until they already experience too much pain. Prevent this by setting up annual visits with Highland Family Medicine, ensuring optimal health throughout your loved one's adolescence.


At Dr. Helton Highland Family Medicine, we will not only diagnose and treat your illnesses but also help you prevent them. We want you to live a fulfilling, happy, and healthy life. Don't hesitate to give us a call or fill out the form below so we can discuss your health and concerns.


As we age, our bodies weaken and become more prone to age-related conditions and diseases. Dr. Helton and his team believe in living in optimal health regardless of age. We're more than happy to assist you or your loved ones in alleviating age-related issues.

Alzheimer’s Disease

Let us help you or your loved one slow down the progression of this disease. Although the world may not have a cure for this condition, we can reduce its symptoms significantly through several approaches.


You may have an anxiety disorder if you often feel nervous and exhausted, have trouble sleeping, and sweat a lot. You should take this condition seriously. Do not hesitate to contact us for an appointment.


Asthma is a condition where your airways inflame, making breathing difficult. Typically, kids before age 5 develop this disease, but adults may too. Let us diagnose and provide proper treatment.


Depression is a real illness, so please do not hesitate to talk to us about it. Most people with clinical depression will overcome it with proper treatment and support. However, you must take the first step by seeing a family doctor.


Diabetes’ early signs and symptoms are often misinterpreted for urinary tract infections, stomach flu, strep throat, or viral infections. At Highland Family Medicine, we can conduct tests for proper diagnoses. The sooner we learn that you have diabetes, the sooner you get treatment, significantly increasing the odds of reducing severe complications.

Ear Infection

Otitis Media or ear infection is common for infants 6-24 months old, but it can also affect adults (radiating pain and pressure in the ear). If your baby has a fever, is frequently togging his/her ears, and has fluid draining from his/her ear, set an appointment with us ASAP.

Flu (Influenza)

Flu is common during flu season. In most cases, you do not need any medical intervention. However, a doctor’s visit is a must for elders and anyone who is still sick for over a week.

High Blood Pressure

Are you struggling to keep your blood pressure under control? We can develop a holistic treatment for you that won’t only depend on pills. Schedule an appointment today, so we can identify the cause and help you treat it, and prevent it from coming back.

High Cholesterol

Like high blood pressure, we treat high cholesterol not just by managing it but helping you eliminate the cause. Having high cholesterol increases the chance of heart attacks. Schedule an appointment so we can help you prevent it.


Vaccines are one of our most potent medical tools today, backed by decades of research. Dr. Helton and associates urge you to get vaccinated to significantly reduce the possibility of catching the disease and help eradicate it, protecting you, your loved ones, and the community of Murfreesboro, TN.

Mood Disorder

A mood disorder is a mental health condition, like major depression, dysthymia, and bipolar disorder, that affects your emotional state. At Highland Family Medicine, we take mood disorders seriously and do our best to diagnose, treat, and refer you to the right specialist.

Newborn Care

Your baby demands frequent doctor visits to ensure good health and growth. Schedule an appointment at Highland Family Medicine so we can plan visits during your loved one’s infancy.

Newborn Vaccines

Newborns are vulnerable to several life-threatening diseases. Fortunately, we have developed effective vaccines that are safe and affordable. Set an appointment with us today, and we’ll prepare a schedule for all your baby’s vaccines and booster shots.

Sick Visits

Highland Family Medicine accepts walk-ins and sick visits to all our established patients. If you feel unwell and require immediate care, please visit our doctor’s office in Murfreesboro, TN.

Sore Throat

Most sore throats (pain or irritation of the throat) will go away on their own within three days. However, if you have a sore throat accompanied by a fever for over three days, please set an appointment with us.

Wellness Checkup

Wellness check-ups are regular check-ups for infants and children to make sure your child’s overall development is healthy. It’s best practice to have your child get checked at ages 2 weeks, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 months, 2, 3, 4, and 5 years.
